The high water table that causes the wet basement is part of the Earth cannot be graded away.
- Water tables can become elevated when they receive more water than they drain off.
- The water table can rise from unusually high amounts of rain, or excess water from higher elevations.
- When the water table rises, it does not just rise at your house, because it did not rain on your house only.
- High water tables are often above the level of the wet basement floors which almost always causes flooding in these areas.
A French Drain installed underneath the basement floor prevents the wet basement from the water table
The inside French drain system uses a sump pump to remove water from the wet basement. The water enters the sump pit from the perimeter drains of a basement waterproofing system, and then the sump pump pumps it up and out of the basement.
